So…yesterday I woke up with a crick in my neck. I didn’t think it would be all that bad, I could manage. It hurt like H-E double hockey stick, but I made it through the day. It was the kind of crick in your neck where you look like an idiot while driving because you can hardly turn your head back & forth to change lanes. But I figured it would be all good by today.
HA! Apparently, picking up a 25 pound 1 year old, wrestling a 25 pound 1 year old, chasing a 25 pound 1 year old, etc etc only compounds the pain!
This morning, I woke up at 4:30 am & literally could not get off my bed. I was trying to swing my legs to the right or to the left so that I could roll myself into the floor. Once I managed that nearly impossible task there I sat until SIX AM because I COULD NOT MOVE! So I sat there pleading with God that Todd would hear the baby wake up because there was nothing I could do to get him.
Todd asked me what I did to my neck for it to be in this much pain (I think a slight part of him thinks I’m overdramatizing this.) He asked if I’d been flying trapezes or swan diving onto the bed (where those accusations came from I’ll never know)–I swear I only slept on it funny two nights in a row!
Don’t get me started on trying to go to the bathroom (it’s the one time I would welcome a catheter) or getting dressed–drinking water even hurts!….. My neck has completely debilitated me for the day! Too bad motherhood doesn’t come with a PTO (paid time off.)
ICY HOT here I come!
Under Construction!!! Don’t judge the mess!
